Enjoy this classic from Bruce M. Di Marsico on the kind of love we dream about.

“To love is to be happy and do what you want.

Be with.  Don’t be with.

Smile.  Don’t smile.

Be loving.  Don’t be loving.

Be affectionate.  Don’t be affectionate.

Give or say what you want.

Take or ask for what you want.

Do your own thing.

If the one you love gets unhappy, it’s not because you are not loving them enough.  Their happiness does not depend on you.  If you find you want them to be happy, it is because you want it.  It’s not because you are a loving person or feel the need to prove to them that you are loving.

You are loving if you are happy.  You will be loving if you are not afraid.”
